whiteprivilegeArmy soldiers at Fort Gordon, GA, were inappropriately shown a slide about “white privilege” during a diversity training briefing, according to an Army spokeswoman.

Army spokeswoman Capt. Lindsay Roman said that Army officials are investigating the Equal Opportunity (EO) briefing, USA Today reports.

The slide, which contains bullet points about “white privilege,” is titled “The Luxury of Obliviousness.”

“Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. ‘To be white in America means not having to think about it,'” states one item.

Capt. Roman claimed that the presentation, which took place on Thursday, was not authorized and is not part of the standard Army briefings that are typically shown to soldiers.

  • AMEN David in MA. It is not a race issue.

    –It is a character issue.
    –It is a morality issue.
    –It is a personal responsibility issue.

    It has absolutely nothing to do with race, color or creed. Your diversity training sounds just like the garbage I had to endure. It all started with being a team player, then political correctness, then diversity, then white privilege, then ——–, what is next?

    There was a computer term at one time that I think describes this to a tee: “Garbage in; Garbage out!” Fill you mind, body and spirit with garbage in – you get hate, crime and envy – garbage out. Fill your mind, body and spirit with love/acceptance, obedience and charity, you reap the benefits. Why is this so hard to understand?

      MA in MO,
      I f your suggesting I have had “diversity training”, I have not… This crap says only one thing: Diversity is Division…. Divide and Conquer, which leads to lies, government policies and slavery, which America is not far from.

    Are they trying to promote racism with bullsh!t diversity training. These people obviously have too much time on their hands. I did not see any of that bullsh!t while in Nam — and we had about every ethnic group there was in my unit. Of course we spent 95% of our time in the jungle so had more important things to take care of. After Nam I worked for a major telecommunication corp. and had to go to a 2 day diversity training class. They did the same thing — tried to promote diversity instead of curbing it. I think I lasted 4 hours before I told them what I thought of their training or mis-training and was asked to kindly leave. I had to ,explain to the 3rd level supervisor why I was asked to leave and what the so called training class entailed. Apparently he went to sit in on one of the classes and called a halt to them quickly. Shame on the Army for such unproductive and inaccurate training.

    Will someone explain to me (and maybe others) why getting an education, obeying the law, getting a job, raising a family (with one daddy) , becoming associated with a religion, buying a home, saving for a rainy day, joining the military, and not sucking on the government (taxpayers) teat shooting midnight hoops, drinking ripple and dealing drugs for the vast majority of White People, is “White Privilege’
